Travis
I have been skateboarding for the last 3 decades and will hopefully continue for another couple! I love that skateboarding is a very self driven sport, you really get what you put into it. It isn’t always easy but once you reach a base level of comfortability on the board you can always have fun. I’ve taught at skateboard camps for Bobby G skateboards and demoed for at least 10 years for bills wheels all over the Bay Area. Through my professional career I’ve had numerous sponsors, and can help people understand how to get sponsored. I consider myself lucky to be able to share my passion with others, now it’s time for you to hope on that board and find your flow!


Antonio LisandroAntonio
I’m Antonio and I’m an ISA certified surf coach. I love teaching people how to surf, I’m a personal trainer and I enjoy having an active lifestyle. A surf skate provides such effective training for surfers looking to improve their technique and shred with confidence. I also do tactical fitness and steel mace training systems to build a strong body and core strength. In my free time I volunteer at veterans surf alliance sharing the stoke of surfing.


Traditional Skateboarding

Skateboarding can be a difficult sport to master, and bumps and bruises are a common occurrence. Learning alongside professional skateboards will help minimize your chance of injury and give you valuable insight on how to approach skating the right way. Taking in person lessons from expert skaters allows you to ask questions and get immediate answers. You will be able to learn so much more in a short amount of time than would be possible using any other training method.
